Main Points

​CMS staff receives frequent inquiries as to the status of real property. The proposed revisions to the policy set forth the process and procedure for the BOE to declare real property as surplus, if applicable, after an annual review, and describe the process to be followed if property is declared surplus and is made available for lease or sale. The detailed provisions of the proposed policy revisions will assist those interested in purchasing or leasing real property from the Board. The public will be able to refer to the policy and its detailed recommendation and guidelines when inquiring about the availability of real property.

Key provisions of of the policy:

  1. Annually, CMS staff will provide the Board with a list of real property that is not being used for school purposes and may be sold or made available for lease with a process to be followed for such sale or lease.
  2. The Board will then determine if real property should be declared surplus and, if so, if the real property should be sold or leased.
  3. The policy provides recommendations for the factors and process to be considered for sale of real property.
  4. The policy provides guidelines for terms, lease provisions and process to be followed for leases of real property.

The proposed amendments were approved by the Policy Committee on March 10, 2016, with five members voting in favor of recommending the policy to the Board for adoption, with one member absent.
